Cheryl has returned to the spotlight five months after welcoming her first child.

The former X Factor judge (34) gave birth to baby son Bear in March and has been holed up in the Surrey mansion she shares with boyfriend Liam Payne (23) during that time, making the most of her maternity leave.

But she still isn't back full time - she was, however, pictured behind the scenes on a photoshoot for L'Oréal as one of the cosmetics brand's brand ambassadors. Similarly, after eight months of speculation, she finally confirmed her pregnancy back in February by cradling her baby bump on another L'Oréal shoot.

Due to the couple's new private nature, speculation has been rife about their relationship status, namely if they'd walked up the aisle as they had been rumoured to over the summer.

!In the U.K., you say 'the Mrs', Maybe one day (we’ll get married)," he clarified to People after repeatedly referring to Cheryl as his wife in recent interviews promoting his debut album.

Just last week, he said it again in an interview with French website On The Move, "To be honest with you I don’t know yet what it is like to write while being a father, I have not passed through this experience - I have something that I’m preparing with Timbaland and I was writing with Pharrell (Williams) when his wife was pregnant along with my wife for that matter."
